CMJS research on Jewish education falls into two categories: formal and experiential. In terms of formal education, our projects have included studies of day schools and studies of day school funding structures.
One of our signature projects in the field of Jewish education is JData, an online database for Jewish educational organizations, from preschool through college. Learn more about JData.
Our projects related to experiential education include studies of Jewish service, opportunities for teenagers, and Jewish camp. Taglit-Birthright Israel is a model of experiential education, and we have an extensive program of research related to the program's impact on a number of outcomes, including attachment to Israel, political views, and decisions regarding marriage and childrearing.
